Early on January 21, more than 170 people were killed or wounded when Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on a prison in the northern Yemen province of Saada, the heartland of the Houthis (Ansar Allah).
The al-Masirah TV aired horrifying footage showing the aftermath of the coalition’s airstrikes which wiped out the prison, leaving dozens of inmates under the rubble.
Head of the Republican Hospital in Saada, Ismail al-Warfi, said that the airstrikes killed 65 people and wounded 112 others.
“Most of the wounded are in critical condition, and the number of martyrs is likely to rise as many are still under the rubble,” al-Warfi told the Beirut-based al-Mayadeen TV.
Coalition warplanes also targeted the district of Sabeen and the international airport in the Houthi-held Yemeni capital, Sanaa. However, no losses were reported there.
A few hours prior to the airstrikes on Saada and Sanaa, warplanes of the coalition bombarded the Communications Directorate building in the western Yemeni city of al-Hudaydah. Three people were killed and 17 others were wounded as a result of the aerial attack.
The Saudi-led coalition said that its warplanes attacked positions of the Houthis in al-Hudaydah and Sanaa. However, it didn’t comment on the deadly airstrikes on Saada prison.
The Houthis’ spokesman and chief negotiator Mohammed Abdulsalam said that the Yemeni people will respond to the coalition’s airstrikes on Saada, Sanaa and al-Hudaydah.
“The massacres of the aggression against the inmates of Saada prison and civilians in al-Hudaydah and Sanaa and the targeting of civilian facilities will not subdue the people or break their will, but will push them to respond in every possible way and with all their right and strength,” Abdulsalam wrote on Twitter.
The Saudi-led coalition intensified its attacks on Houthi-held areas in Yemen following the January 17 missile and drone attack on the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The coalition’s recent deadly airstrikes will likely provoke a fierce response from the Houthis who may attack Saudi Arabia or the UAE in the upcoming few days. This would lead to even more escalation in Yemen.
Zio puppets will pay for this
Well done by the KSA, they should bomb the Houthi scumbags and kill them and their families every single day. The more the better.
Too bad the Coalition only do it once in a while..
are you working with narcos? they have done the same that you have said
Hell Israeli pedophile did you get your fifth poison jab, stupid kike.
One day when USA collapsed and Israelis milk cow is gone. Then your big / enorm war toys will be on the ground. Israel is a small country to have to much war toys /activ army. Israel alone can not pay for everything. That means USA, West, rich Jew in USA, Jew USA/ West Jew companies, Jew banks FED, MMF, Worlds banks and so on… You are buying 3 submarines from Germany for several bilion EURO, 60 F35 – 360 milion dollars each. Israelis economy can not buy this and you have more F16, F15, ships, submarines than whole ME… The whole world is Israelis “milk cow”, especially USA and EU. You have several spy satellites and covering the whole ME. Israel is involved in the all wars in the ME by Israelis controlled USA, plus your puppets Saudiarabia and UAE… Israel created the war between Suni and Shia Muslims using stupid wahabis is Saudiarabia and UAE… Why ISIL did not attacked Turkey, Jordan, Saudiarabia and especially Israel… Israel helped together with Saudi, UAE to create ISIL. Everithing statted after USA Iraq invasion 2003
That’s typical of the the zionist fake jew thieving child raping lowlife scumbag that you are.
The Houthis already said they plan to directly attack sandmutt kikesrael in future.
Can’t wait for some blown up kikeroach homes, schools, hospitals and nurseries – would give me a kick seeing blown up shitskin wog hebrews, especially underage kikeroach brats turned to ground meat.
I really hope the next Houthi attack on Saudi and UAE is immense and begins targeting their institutions – oil terminals, banks and so on. The air port bombings seem to be in affective. Time to take it to the cities and glass towers. Give the ZioWhores a pain they won’t forget.
Our world is a big Jangle. Human rights, international organizations are all just a show. I say to the UAE, this is a war, with more killings, the resistance of the Yemeni people against you will increase. You did not learn from the war between Saddam and Iran, so you will eat its stick. Please do not cry at the moment of the fall of Burj Al Khalifa and do not touch anyone because this is a war.
Totally not a war crime.
Exciting stuff happening in Canada. A country wide convoy has started.
